On the WTA tour this week we have tournaments in Istanbul and Bad Gastein. The big name in Istanbul this week is Venus Williams, who is the number 1 seed. The defending champion, Caroline Wozniacki, has decided not to participate this year, opting to start her hard court season in Stanford. We see Sara Errani back in action in Bad Gastein after a finals run in Bucharest.

Umag, Croatia will play host to a variety off talent, including the entertaining Frenchman Gael Monfils. Lastly, the men will have their first hard court tournament of the summer in Bogata.
